    Hey guys. Has anyone done a UPC brake upgrade on their MK1? If so how much did it change your offset and what master cylinder did you end up running?

I have read a few blogs that say run, run for the hills, any thoughts??? When I did the same to the wee 1200 motor, it was fine, although it has been cleaned up...

    managed to get a rear shot in my album. 2 things id change is threading the plate and drilling out the original holes so bolts come from original direction. and i modified the caliper bolt holes before I made the plate. id make these threads the same as nissan threads to make it easier.but if...

    The Nissan callipers look like a much better size. If you could get a pic of the adapter you had made that would be good. I will have to get some made so if you can get the program that would be great thanks.

    What callipers did you end up using? I got "a great eBay deal" on the UPC brakes and as you say they are far from a bolt on kit. I'll be throwing their callipers in the bin.

    no the rubber cover over the ball joint. i got new ones through yesterford and they are possibly a bit large. and yes you can swap the struts from side to side. this will put the calipers at the front. but when they say that they "bolt on" then they should not need the entire suspension removed...

    Attached images are what I have seen at Small Ford day. One of my 240's had no pull for heat and the other did but not connected, instead it had a tap, i.e. to turn on the heat, stop, get out of the car and turn the tap. I guess this stops heat entering the cabin on those crazy hot days. The most...

    A question that related to this post, mine has a pull for heat knob, I'm guessing tear were a retro fit due to the hot Aussie climate? I.e. Not standard. Mine is missing what ever valve the pull for heat was connected too, if I put this back on, any idea where to get that valve from?

    This might be a stupid question, but if the UPC calipers hit the ball joint could you not swap the struts around? that way the calliper will be at the front and will not hit. My family car has the calliper's at the front and it works well.
